    When he became a father, Michael Lewis found himself expected to feel things that he didn't feel, and to do things that he couldn't see the point of doing. At first this made him feel guilty, until he realized that all around him fathers were pretending to do one thing, to feel one way, when in fact they felt and did all sorts of things, then engaged in what amounted to an extended cover-up. Lewis decided to keep a written record of what actually happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. This book ... Show more

Michael Lewis disappoints

by greebs on Nov 16, 2010

Michael Lewis is one of my favorite authors but this fails and it's somewhat predictable why. As a father, I sometimes find myself telling friends or co-workers about this adorable thing my daughter said or did - and sometimes, halfway through the story, I realize, "Hmm...this probably isn't nearly as interesting to these guys as it is to me." Well, this whole book is sort of like that, mixed with the experience of reading Lewis' diary as a new father. It's occasionally cute, often boring and shockingly hard to relate even as a relatively new father myself. This is a very short book, and if you are as big of a Michael Lewis fan as I am, you may not want to believe me so dive on in and experience it yourself - but as far as I'm concerned, it's not worth the time.
